Women, Peace and Security Agenda
Women play an important role in the prevention and resolution of armed conflicts, whether as human rights defenders under repressive regimes, as peace activists or as members of protest movements. Women advocate for peace in their communities, including in conflict zones and during peace processes. They move between fronts as intermediaries, create humanitarian corridors and negotiate with armed groups.
This stands in stark contrast to formal peace negotiations, in which, all too often, women are seldom involved.
